While some fans of the Big Brother Naija were still confused that the introduction of new housemates was not real, the host of the TV show, Ebuka has confirmed its genuineness.
Biggie also shocked housemates and fans of the show on Wednesday July 31, by adding two more housemates, Joey and Enkay, and then Cindy on Thursday.
The fans and the housemates of the ‘pepper dem’ edition have since then expressed mixed reactions.
However, during the live show on Sunday, August 4, Ebuka dismissed speculations that the housemates were fake.
He noted that they were indeed real and would be battling for the N60 million prize.
Ebuka also stated that the new housemates will not be up for possible eviction this week, just as he said they will not nominate any housemate during the Live Nomination Show.
